Cubs dominate the ratings

This summer’s reality shows are taking a back seat to the ultimate reality show: The Cubs chase for the National League’s Central Division Championship.

Wednesday night’s Dodgers-Cubs game was the highest rated program in prime-time and the entire broadcast day in Chicago, according to Nielsen with a whopping 11 rating and 19 share (second item. Yeah, there’s a first item, but it’s pointless given the White Sox is out of the pennant race and the games are getting CW and My Network TV-like numbers.)

Most of this summer’s reality TV shows have bombed in the ratings, and certainly to this White Sox fan, even the Cubs are more appealing than this junk. Fat March, anyone?
